Hi, i`m Richard, a Veterinarian from the UK. Hoepfully I can help with Satchmoe today.
If you are out of lactulose, then food grade mineral is a good substitute ti ride you over until Tuesday. How much lactulose do you normally need to use?
That is the normal concentration of lactulose, how much do you normally give him?
Ok, food grade mineral oil is a reasonable substitute. 2ml twice daily of the mineral oil should suffice, if you think it is less effective you can use around 3ml up to 3 times daily.
You are very welcome.
